Apply Now for Grants from the FruitGuys Community Fund

The FruitGuys Community Fund, a nonprofit project established by the FruitGuys national fruit distribution company, will fund sustainability projects for small to mid-sized community farms. Grants of $2,500 – $5,000 will be awarded to 5 – 8 small farms, with a focus for the 2013 cycle on farms in Northern California or the Delaware Valley. Projects should focus on one of three areas:

  • Pest control (e.g., owl or bat boxes)
  • Pollination (e.g., beehives or hedgerows)
  • Soil health (e.g., cover crops or hoop houses)

The goal of the Community Fund is to help farms and orchards operate more sustainably, both environmentally and economically. For more information on how to apply (by the March 1st deadline), visit: http://fruitguyscommunityfund.org/apply
